Le Touquet Cycle track

A new bi-directional cycle track has been created the full length of the sea front. This has proved very popular as you can now bicycle the entire length of the waterfront safely isolated from the worries of traffic. The bike path  is separated from the roadway with dune grass. This sea plant has been chosen to give a  natural look to the waterfront and mitigate the image of  the tar bicycle track.  The L’Oyat also known as sand reed grass is a perennial that requires no maintenance, unlike other plantations already present on the waterfront that  must regularly be renovated  because of their unsuitability to salt air .

The pedestrian crossings are clearly identified by stones with a wooden dressing to soften the appearance. A canvas of coconut biodegradable matting currently holds the sand in place but will gradually disappear to give a natural intended appearance.
A fantastic and well implemented addition the Le Touquet promenade. So rent some bikes and get some exercise.
There are also a number of other regular guided bike tours of Le Touquet available during the summer months.
